Hellsinki Metal Horizons, a club festival with eyes to the horizons, scouring the metalverse for acts that you don’t see every summer around every corner – instead inviting those that delight us with their progressive complexities, their thundering technical aptitudes, their modern propensities, or their idiosyncratic quirks.
Legends and rarities, favorites and oddities, Horizons is a new conceptual festival that’s here to provide an aural adventure to those longing for inspiring new flavors.
The main festival event will take place June 10th-11th at Ääniwalli, in the Vallila district of Helsinki, with a warm-up club gig at downtown On The Rocks, on June 9th.
Hellsinki Metal Horizons is brought to you as a collaborative effort from Elektrik Products (EP) and Enslain. Horizons can be seen as a cousin event to EP’s well-established and long-revered Hellsinki Industrial Festival incorporating the same high-quality visuals and venue trimming.
Meanwhile the partnership with Enslain – a metal ‘zine published since ’97 and a merch team that serves on the front line of events – ensures that the metal audiences are served up a tasty array of fresh metal slices.
Widen your metal horizons!
